2019 Implant Mini Residency Program Recap | Toronto, ON
dentalcorp and DC Institute were pleased to launch an Implant Mini Residency Program in 2019 in collaboration with BioHorizons. This intensive program took 11 doctors through the foundations of surgical and prosthetic implant dentistry over the course of 3 weekend sessions throughout the year.
During Session 1, participants were introduced to fundamental building blocks such as medical history, anatomical considerations and diagnostic tools which are used to build patient specific treatment plans. Participants were also guided through a series of simple and clear hands-on surgical labs.
Session 2 brought the doctors back together for further development of restorative considerations to maximize implant success for patients.
The program then concluded in November with two days of live surgery. The doctors performed the surgeries on their own patients, while another doctor participating in the program assisted which provided hands-on experience from multiple lenses. It was an extremely successful two days. Patients walked away feeling happy and satisfied with the excellent standard of care from our doctors who developed a strong feeling of confidence in performing the surgeries by the end of the program. Over the two days 23 patients were seen and a total of 32 implants were placed.
This program was truly a success and there are many more implants to come with exceptional patient care from the doctors who participated. A special thanks to our program mentor Dr. Allen Aptekar and to BioHorizons for helping us make this program possible. An extra special thank you to Dr. Haddad and Skyview Dental for allowing us to use their facility for the live surgery portion and for the hard work their Dental Assistants Thao and Teanna provided to the doctors throughout the day.
